ISO 9001: We hold a British standards Institute issued ISO 9001 Quality Management System certificate which covers us for:
Electrochemical and electroless chemical plating processes for precious and non-precious metals and anti-corrosion finishes.

The ISO system helps improve customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continual improvement. Most importantly of all it provides us with a management framework through which we can address and understand more objectively our business processes which means that we are able to address short comings and improve the way we work at all levels.

Process Control: Key to our service is the integrity of our solutions. Each solution is carefully monitored and fully inspected by an external body each month. Our skilled operators are trained to identify process anomalies and carry out remedial action as required.
Inspection: We operate a dedicated final inspection facility where components are visibly examined and where required measured using a range of instruments including micrometers and thickness testers.
Certificates Of Conformity: Certificates of conformity can be provided where required to customer specification. Certificates generally detail:
Waste Reduction: As part of our ISO accreditation we undertake a program of continual waste reduction which involves accounting for waste production, ie, bad coatings, assessing the cause and carrying out appropriate action to reduce the likely-hood of future waste. Through this process we are able it identify areas of repeated waste as well as being better suited to predict the chance of future loss and take proactive moves accordingly.
Environmental Protection: Because of the nature of our business we take the environment very seriously. Our facilities are equipped with full waste water treatment facilities for controlling the discharge of harmful metal solutions to drain and the collection of harmful sludge's. Combined with our preferential use of environmentally friendly process solutions we operate with the certainty that our environmental impact is minimised.
Customer: One of the most important elements of
our business is you, the customer. We also welcome feedback
on our methods and approach in order that we may improve
our future services.
